CP Training Consortium was formed in 1996 to provide contracting and procurement training to Shell Group companies on an outsourced basis. Since 1999, CP Consortium courses have been open to participants from any company, and the range of subjects covered has been extended dramatically in response to demand.
The company’s client base now includes organisations from a wide range of industrial sectors, such as telecommunications, cement and utilities, as well as a much broader cross-section of the oil, gas and energy sector.
Public training courses
CP Training Consortium delivers public training courses in central London and other venues in the UK. Most of the courses in the public programme are available for in-house delivery by arrangement. Participants on the company’s public courses come from all over the world and CP Training Consortium delivers in-house programmes virtually anywhere globally.
In some cases, its courses are regarded as standalone programmes, in others as complementing the client’s own training programme.

CP Training Consortium’s public courses all have a degree of focus on oil, gas and energy sector business, and its in-house programmes can be tailored to meet client specialist requirements.
CP Training runs a range of courses that have been accredited by the CPD Standards Office. The office recognises and independently accredits high-quality continuing professional development (CPD) provision, which meets the criteria of all types of CPD schemes and requirements. They also formally recognise both new and traditional forms of professional development, such as podcasts versus instructor-led training courses.
To ensure transparency, the CPD Standards Office is steered by an expert advisory board comprising CPD experts, academics, professional bodies and employers. Their criteria and assessment methodologies have been developed from ongoing research into CPD. They enables CPD providers to deliver CPD activities appropriate to all sectors, that are suitable for modern CPD schemes from the professional bodies and institutes.
